This was my last winter sunrise at the beach for a while… our noses almost froze and fell off. But this families commitment to beautiful morning golden light created the most beautiful skies for us to work with.
The nailed the “Mum & Dad” shot. We also did a few one on ones, giving each child a special photo of themselves with each parent.
We are looking for super cute Models to rock our Spring Photoshoot for Stitchaholic, Nok, Baby its Personal, Bean Sprout & Gallop.

Over the next week or so, I plan on sharing the images that I entered into the NZIPP Iris awards. I am so grateful to Estelle, her mum, her chicken and pony for helping me bring this idea to life. This image received a Bronze award.
We have had the most fun over the last couple of months putting together a display for Jenna McKenzie School of Dance brand new studio. The dancers did a brilliant job at making the beach & gardens look tropical – I can assure you it was not.
The finished installation consisted of 3 large canvas + 13 custom framed prints which we printed &
framed ourselves. We absolutely love how it turned out – there are still a couple more things to go up so
watch this space!!
